Did not have reg bed spreads on the 2 beds. Got 2 blankets from the front office and BOTH had HOLES in them. One was unraveling. I wouldn't even let a dog sleep on them. The tub had thick black residue around the drain. We (3 of us) didn't even take a shower because of the appearance of the tub.... More

The place definitely needs some TLC. There was no drain stopper in the sink, and the place overall shows lots of wear. If it wasn't such a convenient location, we would not have stayed there. Others in my group had real problems with filthy rooms, and aloof staff. The staff was very nice in all of my interactions.

We Stayed at the Harrisburg Howard Johnson for years when we visit AACA Hershey. We always accept that the accommodations will be somewhat downtrodden, but it is a budet hotel and it keeps the costs down. This year however was the worst we have ever seen it. There were multiple plumbing issues, drainage issues, and our television never worked. Our... More

Hope you like waking up at 7 in the morning... Every morning. Even Saturday and Sunday. The housekeepers come cackling and hollering and cutting up every single morning. I hear them coming from the other side of the hotel. Letting the front desk know didn't help at all. The hotel was pretty good besides that, but it's a big enough... More

I stayed over 2 weeks this time, and the whole experience was great, as it has been on previous stays. Good clean room, excellent room service, friendly staff, good continental breakfast. Hotel is well-situated for my trips around the locality, and it has to be the best budget-priced hotel in the area. Maybe not in the full 5-star catrgory, but... More

If you like smelly dirty rooms with broken hotel flip locks this will be the place for you! The front desk women were very helpful in arranging that the airport shuttle would come directly to our building to save my elderly mother the long walk to the lobby. They also were going to arrange for someone to fix the fliplock... More

I go to Harrisburg a fair amount and this might be my favorite hotel to stay at. There are nicer ones 'downtown' but Harrisburg is small so your not gaining any big on location and you're paying double the price as you would here. It's right next to Harrisburg Mall and a bunch of restaurants and basically anything else you'd... More
